[Comments] (4) : Japanese piggy bank helps savers enjoy romance. I know that romance was always a chore until I got a Japanese piggy bank.

Uh, no, actually the thing I wanted to share with you was a bit from the end of that article:

The company is already thriving on another new bestseller -- "Mugen Edamame" or "eternal green soy beans" -- plastic key chains that let people pretend to push boiled soy beans out of shells.

Genius! It's like the bubble wrap of Japan!

A friend of mine just got back from Japan and brought one of those key chains with him. It's quite compelling. Here's a video of some promotional material that he took.

So, that's essentially the less disgusting version of the pooping cow and snotty nose keychains?
